Call For Papers


The world's pressing healthcare needs may benefit from judicious application of networked information technology. Future networked information systems will support, for example, clinical workflow, remote diagnosis and consultation, e-prescribing, and mobile data collection and surveillance, disease outbreak identification and patient participation in their own wellbeing and care. Mobile-computing technology may be particularly helpful in improving access to healthcare (geography, monetary and informational), by encouraging personal health management, and by enabling patient and provider mobility. Wearable medical devices are emerging, to measure essential vital signs like pulse, respiration, ECG, blood glucose level, and patient mobility. Handheld devices support clinicians in urban hospitals, and portable diagnostic kits allow remote healthcare teams to more easily reach rural villages.

The widespread availability of mobile phones, and recent experiments with low-cost, long-range broadband wireless networks, bring connectivity to all these opportunities. We encourage papers that present novel ideas for networked computing technology in support of healthcare, and which are likely to invoke thoughtful discussion at the workshop.

Research papers should focus on all aspects of networked healthcare technologies. Of interest, though not exclusively, are the following topics:
remote diagnosis and remote consultation
clinical applications of mobile or networked healthcare
mobile and wearable medical sensing applications
design of wearable and home-care health devices
sensor networks for public health monitoring and surveillance
networked mobile technology for rural healthcare
security and privacy in healthcare application
experience from technology deployments
usability of mobile health applications and devices
applications to emergency response and disaster response
cost-efficient and energy-efficient networking for remote healthcare
remote access to electronic health records

Papers should be limited to 6 pages in IEEE format, not submitted concurrently elsewhere in any form, and present new contributions regarding either technology or experience in deploying technology. Papers should be submitted via EDAS.

The workshop will also include a poster session, where researchers are encouraged to present work-in-progress on any of the topics above. Posters regarding experience with NetHealth or mHealth prototypes or pilot deployments are particularly encouraged. To be considered for the session, please submit a 1-page abstract in IEEE format according to the deadlines below. Instructions for poster preparation will be sent to accepted authors.
